This idea (not the names) was suggested by Robert Reich, "[Mr. President] Finally, here's a step you don't even need congressional approval for: issue an executive order forcing big government contractors to disclose their political spending, and ban all political activity by companies receiving more than half their revenues from the government." We'll suggest using the hashtag #GCEO. To read more about Robert Reich's ideas(s) please see BEYOND OUTRAGE.

Thank you, Mr. Secretary.

Upon his departure from office, President Eisenhower, a republican, warned the country about the abuses of the military industrial complex.

Now, President Obama, has the opportunity to do something about it. If we make him. Here's a tweet you can copy and paste:

Tell @BarackObama to issue #GCEO Government Contractor Executive Order to Limit & Ban Political Activity.

It's refreshing to have someting to advocate for, that just one person has the power to change in a courageous moment in history. And you can claim partial responsibility. Now, rate this 5 stars and get tweeting.

Op-ed Guidelines
Please bring up points that were missed, elaborate on issues not fleshed out, add ways to make the idea/bill better, suggest a companion for GREATER Raters to consider. Please check your facts, grammar, syntax, punctuation, credit sources and quotes, and keep it under 500 words unless you absolutely cannot—then never more than 700 words. Please keep your criticism constructive. We will likely not print destructive criticism although a well written partisan rant bringing up new issues in the idea/bill or previous Op-eds may be accepted if it ends on a constructive note—especially if it offers an alternative idea/bill.

Shorter "letters" are encouraged that bring a new facet to the subject. The intent of the Op-eds is to fully cover the issue for the kind reader to consider before rating, and not waste their time with redundancy or the dreaded—"people-screaming-at-one-another-while-wearing-earplugs-syndrome." Think of the idea/bill as the base with the Op-eds stacked on top to form a structurally sound argument. The goal here is to have a GREATER US for the greatest number of citizens/neighbors. We may publish your piece without notice—so please only submit completed articles. We may, also, contact you for a rewrite or edit. We might even offer suggestions. It is our intention to fairly present the views of fiscal conservatives, independents, and social liberals—to find the overlap of whole-hearted support (nonpartisan) plus the commonality of the "I-can-live-with-that" (bipartisan).
